Life Rolls On in Day by Day

Social: We went out to eat at the Oyster Bar last night, meeting up with old friends we’d not seen in quite a while. It was a nice visit (loved my Cajun oyster po’ boy and Lisa had high praise fo...

Busy Life, Tired Wife in Day by Day

Last week was full on and this week will be nuts. Business: First quarter/end of year tax stuff continues and will be a sorry pile of papers and deadlines until late March. We have a dozen bids ...

Back to Nature in Day by Day

Hey, I don’t know who might be interested but click on the It is focused on an eagle and her newly hatched baby . They built their nest under a light, so night time viewing is possible, too. ED...

Shedding the Twits in Day by Day

It amazes me that the extreme right, instead of being happy with a Trump win, continues to spew ugliness near and far, with wild suppositions and name calling, which might be interesting except t...

Hurry Up and Wait in Day by Day

Much of Florida is under a tornado watch or warning at this hour. So far, our area has seen a couple of gusty storms (it’s quiet now), but the storm is hitting hard just 15 or 20 miles north. I s...

Changing the Vibe in Day by Day

Good morning! Today, I am clearing out the clutter because my husband is making an awful mess at the other end of the house. We’re remodeling the master bath, the very first room we remodeled whe...

The Explanation in Day by Day

Thank you to those who responded to my request in the last entry. Your input was helpful. So. Here’s the story and why I wanted your input before explaining. I started and run a non-profit that ...


Hi all, I know this might be a bit confusing, but do not want to comment more until after you’ve given me your HONEST input. Please understand that you may be making incorrect assumptions, but I ...

Welcoming in 2017 in Day by Day

Last Thursday’s chilly temperatures were a nice departure from our endless summer, but it was a temporary reprieve. By Sunday, we began to climb back into the high 70s, which was great, since it ...

Christmas 2017 in Day by Day

It was good. Emotional, but that’s the way it is these days. The kids liked their gifts and wowed us with theirs: they booked the tickets for our trip to New England next fall using our voucher f...


I’m not sure how to title my entry. Perhaps it will come to me as I type. If so, you already know what I came up with. :) A friend died tonight. She’d been in ill health for the past three decade...


…when all through the house, the a/c was running…‘cause we live in the south! :) (Gotcha!) Christmas preparations are done. I have some pre-holiday cooking each day for the Christmas meal, but no...


I’ve neglected Prosebox, but I doubt I’ll improve until after the holidays. Just a few more gifties to buy. Costco has a neat thing for my gardening friends: a rosemary plant that is trimmed in t...


I try and try to block out time to write in here and time slips away. I’ve been very upset about the standoff at Standing Rock and am pleased to see a temporary resolution. I say temporary for tw...

PELOSI TAKES IT! in Day by Day

The conservatives (aka “alt-right” aka “White supremists”) tried very hard to stop her because their plan is to wipe out every opponent but they fell short, as they will over and over. I’m not a ...

A huge loss on so many levels: Hmmm…I might have to do this as a .

Baby Killer in Day by Day

I was just called a “baby killer” for supporting Clinton for President. My heart aches for a grandchild. I’ve spent my entire life lifting kids up. I am currently focused on millennials. Try to i...


This non-profit work is turning into a full time job! It’s going well, but a million details must be addressed at once and so I find myself devoting more and more hours to fine tuning the process...

Random Things in Day by Day

There are at least six different things I should be doing, but I haven’t been exactly stagnant. I started a non-profit a while back and it has been growing by leaps and bounds. Of course, it wil...


Gypsywynd and I were discussing the Florida ballot. She thought our early voting was odd. I think it’s all about what you’re used to. I’m glad to shed the days of long lines and boring waits for ...


There’s a lot going on right now. Lots of writing and pursuing grants. Had a belated birthday celebration with a friend (his is at the end of September, mine is in early October and between all f...

Gypsywynd Called in Day by Day

She’s home and the power came back on shortly after they got home, so they have air conditioning. No damage to the house, except for a section of fence. The only downside is that they are without...


I want to tie this series up, but so many things are happening, it’s hard to keep up. I’ll have a regular column in the magazine (set to launch mid-November), plus two or three more articles in e...


I’m usually not in pictures. I’m usually taking them and selfies horrify me. Eldest son’s girlfriend snapped this one of the two of us and I think it captures us perfectly: Our final day on our ...


I’m finally caught up enough to continue posting! But first, a real life friend of mine has joined the prosebox community so go tell Sherri hello: I’ve been crazy busy: SEO pages and writing mag...
